    I believe they are definitely worth adding to a tank. Whether it is true that they have anti bacterial and anti fungal properties I'm not sure. However having some form of leaf litter creates a more natural habitat and a better balanced ecosystem which will reduce stress in the fish leading to better disease prevention.

    They also make handy spawning spots as my GBR's have shown. If I ever took breeding them seriously, It would be very easy for me to remove the eggs attached to the leaves and try to artificially raise them.

    Then on the flip side some may find they give a messy look as they break down. They are not that cheap to say they are just leaves either.
    As I mentioned they may lower ph but unless the substrate is completely covered with them or the tank is prone to ph crashes, they are fine.

    Bit of an update for this tank.

    Mrs Ram is still acting strange.

    Tank has had another outbreak of whitespot due to an accidental cross use of water change equipment.

    I have new canister filter on order to replace the HOB filter for this tank.
    The canister is rated for 1000 lph for tanks up to 400 litres so should provide plenty of filtration for this 60 litre tank haha.
    The canister has a volume of approximately 8 litres so there should be plenty of room for extra media to help with filtration and improve water quality which has been an issue for this tank recently.
    It will also be an audition for this filter as I plan on adding a canister onto my 90 litre shrimp tank in the near future.

    There always seems to be a problem around the corner.....
    Glad the leaves have had a good effect on your fish, I imagine it feels just a little bit more natural for them. Speaking about leaves, I need to order more, my stock is getting low.
